Remote Test System for AXIOM Remote
1 Project Summary
The Axiom Remote is a remote control unit designed to compliment the AXIOM Beta range of cameras. Since there has been significant development on the Axiom Remote, it is essential to have a provision to test the Remote, remotely, and in an automated way. The aim of this project was to develop a Remote Test System to simulate button and rotary encoder action on the Axiom Remote via external hardware. The main goals of this project was :
- Implement and test the HDL to simulate button presses and encoder turns via simple commands
- Add advanced actions for testing like button bounces and encoder skipping
- Design a test framework to run automated tests
The major objectives of the project have been met. VHDL code for the gateware and a python framework for running automated tests, have been developed over the summer.
Google Summer of Code 2021 project.
